  • Synthetic full on hyperv host using agent
    I hope so. Cloudberry is really awesome and if they were able to get synthetic backups working with hybrid and VM all would be right with the world
  • Wasabi 90 day retention billing
    Thanks David...Much appreciated. Actually, I am using the Hybrid option on all our tests. Works wonderfully!. However, most of our servers out there are Hyper-V and we are using the VM version of the software. And we were really hoping to use Synthetic Fulls which is supported by Wasabi. But VM version does not support that yet. But if we rule out Wasabi because of the 90 day thing then it may not be a big point (but it is soo cool).

    Another thing is that we would love separate retention options for local and cloud. For instance, locally we want to have very long retention using a variation of GFS but in the cloud we only want 7 days retention and that is not supported yet. However, I read somewhere where version 6.0 will support this option which would be cool

    Thanks again
  • HyperV & SQL
    Thanks very much. Gonna give it a go.
  • Wasabi 90 day retention billing
    I was looking at BackBlaze as well but I am just concerned about their recovery download speeds.
  • Wasabi 90 day retention billing
    Great info...Thanks very much. I was really hoping to use Wasabi but the advantages of CB is the agnostic nature of the software. I am going to check out Azure. Perhaps it will work better long term anyway for DR testing and such.
    Thanks again
  • HyperV & SQL
    Thanks Matt. Couple followup questions assuming CB is installed on hyper v host.
    1. Since the SQL version will be installed on the guest os does it need to be excluded from the backup at the VM host level?
    2. Does this still hold true for Microsoft Exchange running on a VM? Would we need to install the exchange version of CB on the guest?

    Thanks
  • HyperV & SQL
    Interesting discussion here. So we have several hyperv hosts with sql servers as well as exchange server. So just to be clear when you have a VM with sql (full or express) we would need to install the SQL version of cloudberry as well on the guest as well as the VM version of cloudberry for the other guests? So basically we would tell the VM version of cbb to backup all VM's except the VM with sql on it (possibly exchange too) and install the SQL version of cbb on the guest and maintain separate backups?

    Just trying to get some clarification on that.

    Thanks Dave
  • Synthetic full on hyperv host using agent
    thanks for the response. Man it would really be nice if these features were available. The need to reseed a 1 TB VM backup every 14 days or so makes it not very usable for image based backups. I really love cbb. It works very well.
